- Sometimes our columns need a taper.…That's fine.…With concrete, we can do that.…The objective of this video is to create…a tapered column…then we're going to use it in a model.…To get started, let's go to Families.…Let's click New,…and let's scroll down until we find Structural Column,…and select it.…Let's hit Open.…Now we have some predefined, equally…constrained reference planes.…That's good. We'll use them.…What we need to do, though,…is put some overall dimensions on them.…On the quick access toolbar,…click your Align Dimension button.…
Let's go outside the outside and pick a point here.…Now let's go outside the outside,…and let's pick a point here.…Let's hit Escape a couple times.…Now what I'm going to do is hold down my Control key,…and I'm going to select both of these.…I'm going to click my Label dropdown.…I'm going to select Add Parameter.…For the name, I'm going to call it Base Size.…I'm going to keep it as a type parameter,…and I'm going to click Okay.…Now I want to add some more reference planes.…I'm going to right-click on this reference plane,…
Following an overview of the basics, Eric provides specific instructions on modeling different types of families: foundation, framing, annotation, and truss families. He'll show how to perform 3D extrusions and build in flexibility with parameters, as well as create formulas, array parameters, and lookup tables.
